It comes with a 760 mAH Li-ion battery that will give you up to hours talking and up to 450 hors standby time.

As you can see, it’s mainly the looks. If you are searching for a great looking candy bar cell phone mainly for talking, occasional photo and some data transfer, this might be a great choice. Otherwise it is too basic. You will not be able to get good photos with 0.3 megapixel camera. Only 4 megabytes non-upgradable memory will significantly limit what you can do with data and single MP3 ringtone will probably fill it to the limit.
